Veszprém is a picturesque and historical town with an undulating terrain, situated at the centre of the Western Hungarian (Transdanubian) region, where the Bakony Hills meet the Lake Balaton area. The friendly and cosy atmosphere of this thousand-year-old small town is well reflected by its cultural life.
